This week we've still been learning to get use to ratios. To figure out the answer for ratios you need to use your multiplying skills. For example; there are 2 strawberry sweets for every 3 orange sweets in a bag of 30 sweets. How many strawberry sweets are there? Firstly you need to add 2 + 3 and it equals 5, then you figure out how to get to thirty by multiplying something with 5. So 5 x 6 = 30 and then multiply 2 and 3 with 6. 6 x 2 = 12 and 6 x 3 = 18 and the answer is 12:18


This was our equation for our Thinkboard this week and as you can see, it is a subtraction equation.

For this weeks thinkboard we learnt how to add decimals. I solved the problem using the strategy partitioning.

Sentence Types

What kind of sentences do you use for your writing? I use to always use simple sentences before I knew there were two other kind of sentences. Now that I have learnt about the three sentence types I can now mix them up in whatever writing that I do.

Chicken-leg Effect

Have you heard of the chicken-leg effect? The chicken-leg effect is when, if you go to space your legs start turning skinnier because of the zero gravity.

Brenda Martinez

This week our task was to create a presentation about Brenda Martinez and an article about her. One of the points I learnt in this article was that Brenda couldn't afford new running shoes when she was young and now she is donating shoes to kids from her sponsor New Balance.

This week our thinkboard was a subtraction equation and the strategy I used to solve the equation was partitioning.


For this weeks thinkboard we have learnt to multiply decimals. As you must have already noticed, when you multiply decimals the answer is smaller than the equation.


For this weeks thinkboard we have been focusing on fractions. Also in thinkboards we don't just show how we get our answer, we also have to write ten other similar equations.
